Brief Answer:
Miminal delays are normal

Detailed Answer:

You are unlikely to be pregnant.

In women it is common to have periods delayed periods once in a while. The delay could be upto one week in some women and is perfectly normal. Delayed periods might be due to change in place, increased stress, change in weight etc. These situations of delayed periods are also associated with flow changes too. You need not be worried about it.

You are not pregnant and everything is fine. Wait for you periods for 5 more days.

Let me know if you have any more questions.
